Soil testing can pave the way to making your dream a reality.
MAXIMUM SEED TO SOIL CONTACT
Lush, green lawns are a homeowner's dream. They offer a sense of pride and they drastically increase your curb appeal. So, what happens when you notice your lawn starting to get brown or patchy? Your first instinct might be to reach for the fertilizer but, before you do, you need to know which one to reach for and how much you will need. This is where professional soil testing can help.
Servicing the Central Iowa communities of Ankeny, Granger, Grimes, and Johnston.
When you schedule our team for your lawn care needs, our job is to work with you to find out exactly how we can improve the health of your lawn. There are a couple of different reasons why your lawn might be brown or have patchy spots. The primary reasons are: lack of the correct nutrients, lawn disease, and insect infestation. Instead of reaching straight for the fertilizer when we see brown grass and/or patches, we usually add on our soil testing services before we jump to any conclusions. This test will produce a full, detailed report on what your lawn needs down to the pH levels and the specific amounts of each nutrient.
Trying to figure out which fertilizer to use on your lawn without running a soil test might result in too much or too little fertilizer. Our tests are designed to check your soil's pH as well as the levels of phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, and iron. Once we understand exactly what your lawn needs to reach its maximum growth and strength potential, we can get started with your individual tailored lawn care plan. Without this information, your fertilization treatment might not be as helpful as it possibly could be.

Knowing Your Soil's pH Level Will Prevent Fertilizer Waste
Soil testing will help you decipher exactly what nutrients your lawn is lacking as well as its pH level. Our experts at Stretch Property Maintenance will take a sample of your soil and run it through some tests to determine the best course of action for the health of your lawn. Skipping the soil test means using a lot of guesswork which could potentially have negative impacts such as over-fertilization and soil erosion. Our team can help you avoid this by providing detailed reports showing exactly what your lawn needs.
Neutral soil pH levels range between 6.5-7.5. If your soil's pH level is below 6.5, it's acidic and if it is above 7.5, it's alkaline. If you use fertilizer on your lawn without knowing that your soil has a low pH, your blades won't be able to absorb the needed nutrients. This means that instead of absorbing into your lawn, your fertilizer will instead run off your lawn.
